Homeschool Style

Labor Day has passed and we're all in back-to-school mode.  Sharpening our pencils, sporting new tennis shoes, and smelling the crayons.

And talking about what we're doing.  And how we're doing it.


Well, let me just tell you that today was not a bed of roses, my friends.  Not. At. All.

And browsing around the homeschool blogs reading bubbly posts about darling little rosy-cheeked cherubs who just can't wait to learn Latin, or memorize the Constitution, or whatever, is just a wee bit depressing right now.

So let me just welcome you to my own, personal homeschool-mom-blog Q&A of the day:

What is your homeschool style?

Are you ready?  Wait for it...

Salute, and execute.

Subject to change when your behavior and my mood improves.

That will be all.

Does it really have to change? ;)

Not. Much.

mmm-hmmm ~ Salute & Execute
(yours is not to reason why...)
Because I'm the MOM, remember?!

So, are you ALL still feeling full of crud? Too many donuts yesterday? :o

What exactly are they grumbling about doing? Could it be grammar?? ;-)

Today is going better... so far :o)

Yesterday's troubles were more to do with expectations and attitudes than academics.

The weather didn't cooperate for a trip to the lake, and some of our friends (invited to the party) were delayed. And my boys - one in particular - didn't handle it well. Downright rude and obnoxious.

He and his dad and I had a little conference last night and explained the dire, dire consequences that will ensue if things don't change immediately and dramatically.

I think we made some progress.

Aha ~ sounds like you've got it (him) in hand again =)
Glad you're having a better day!
